Your summer working wardrobe
As the temperature rises, your on-duty wardrobe needs to work as hard as you do. Quality, function and fit are central to our workwear collection, so you’ll feel comfortable and ready to take on whatever the day brings.
Choose the right fit for you
Hot, sticky days call for clothes that can move and adapt with you. Our womenswear collection offers a range of flattering silhouettes and specifically tailored cuts to suit different body shapes (and includes a plus-size line). Our summer styles are also made from super-soft cotton, lightweight viscose and other breathable blends to keep you feeling fresh all day (and night) long. No more sticky fabrics against your skin; no more uncomfortably tight fits.
Clever features in our workwear collection aid mobility, wearability and movement. Take, for example, the womenswear trousers with elasticated stomach panels and a mid-rise waist that move, stretch and bend with you. And you don’t have to sacrifice your style. With a mix of uplifting patterns and designs, you can still add some fashionable flair to your working wardrobe
Try our innovative tech
With a 100-year heritage of creating durable and future-facing workwear, it’s little wonder our fabric technology is second to none. Cleverly engineered to protect you from the elements, our fabrics are designed to work with you all year round.
So, what to choose for summer? Our FLEX technology enhances movement so you won’t feel restricted by your clothes or uncomfortable in the heat, while our innovative Temp-IQ technology™ prevents you from overheating when temperatures rise.
This clever tech works by trapping cool air inside the yarn, moving moisture away from the skin as you sweat. When it reaches the outer surface of the fabric, it evaporates. Quick-drying fabrics also mean you stay comfortable for longer – and there’s no need to worry about sweat patches. Check out our selection of Temp-IQ™ trousers, caps and T-shirts for your hot-weather workwear wardrobe.
Opt for bright colours and prints
Our summer styles are infused with nostalgic Cali-cool prints and sunny hues. Cotton vests and T-shirts in retro patterns and bright colours have relaxed, warm-weather days covered. Add a pair of light cotton-twill, loose-fit shorts and a canvas tote bag, and you’re ready to hit the beach in style.
If it’s summertime vibes you’re after, a short-sleeved, cropped shirt in a vibrant print is a must-buy.
Wear undone over a bikini or crop top or buttoned up with a matching bucket hat and shorts for an effortlessly cool look. Just add some statement sunnies and a surf or skateboard. Happy days!
And let’s not forget the classic summertime favourite: denim shorts. Our Perfect Shape Denim is designed with Cone’s SGene® technology to give a superior stretch and recovery so you can wave goodbye to gaping waistbands or saggy fabrics. The Flex stomach panels also provide added support and a smooth silhouette.
Master day-to-night dressing
Womenswear trousers may not immediately spring to mind when it comes to summer dressing, but our New Wave collection features chino-style designs that are light and breathable. Cut from a comfortable stretch fabric with in-built moisture-wicking technology – they can be dressed up or down with just about anything in your summer wardrobe.
With late Nineties/early Noughties styles still dominating the catwalks, cargo pants have been enjoying something of a style renaissance. And where better to go for the classic utility style than Dickies? Whether you pick denim or our striped Hickory versions, they’re super-wearable thanks to the soft, lightweight fabrics. Add a low heel, a vest and undone hair for the evening, and you have grunge chic nailed.
Given the UK’s (ahem) unpredictable weather, a cropped jacket is a layering essential no summer wardrobe should be without. Ideal for throwing on over a vest or tee on cooler evenings, it also comes in handy when the office air-conditioning has gone into overdrive.
So, whether you’re dressing for work or play this summer (or probably a bit of both), our womenswear essentials will take you through the season in effortless style. Now let the good times roll.
